Gold In The Midwest—Part II: Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio
January 2020 by Alex Dolbeare

What today appears to be a “road to nowhere” was once a road to somewhere. At today’s precious metal prices that somewhere can be of great importance to you.
With the exception of well-established operators with proven reserves and years of field experience, the high price of gold brought a flood of speculators, con men, and real estate brokers into the mix who were not previously engaged in the gold mining market.

Representative Paul Shepherd stopped by, and Idaho County Commissioner Jim Chmelik dove with one of the dredgers so he could see for himself that no harm was being done to fish or their habitat.
There were nice sections of vein material at the end of several drifts, like they just stopped work one day and walked away.
